When teachers have access to great instructional materials, they get to focus their time, energy and creativity on bringing lessons to life for their students.
The best instructional materials support teachers in finding ways to inspire their students to learn and grow.
We invest in:
- The development and distribution of free and publicly available standards-aligned instructional materials;
- Quality professional learning that ensures teachers and school leaders have the opportunity to learn to use these materials effectively; and
- Networks of districts and states working to make high-quality instructional materials a central part of their strategy for improving schools.
We pay particular attention to ensuring that instructional materials are culturally responsive and are designed to support English language learners and students who are performing below grade-level standards.
